Pupil Notices – Week 04/09/2017

Extra-Curricular Sports Clubs

The extra-curricular sports programme starts this week, with various activities running at lunch time and after school. If you are interested then please collect an information sheet and consent from from the PE department.

There have been a couple of changes since the original letters were sent out –

  • Netball club – will now run on a Wednesday after school and not Monday – this was due to a clash with other activities on a Monday
  • Boxing club has been added to the programme. This will run on Wednesdays after school in the fitness room

Keep up-to-date with sports clubs and team news by following the PE dept. Twitter page – @stahssport

There are loads of different crafts that you can come along and learn and join in with – knitting, sewing, crochet etc. We’re feeling quite ambitious this year and between now and November we will be making poppies in various forms with the intention of creating a ‘weeping window’ idea in the school as part of our remembrance celebrations (there’s a very grand picture below – our will be much more compact!). As you can imagine we will need lots of help to produce all of the poppies required so if anyone is able to help at all it’d be very much appreciated!
